This review is from: Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition (PC DVD) (Computer Game)
I've clocked many, many hours on this game and still am only half way. The 'die and replay' aspect makes the game tough at times but also makes sure that you think out your every move and it makes the game more real and more fun. The experience and atmosphere are fantastic and unlike any game I've ever played.
Gameplay is fantastic when played with an X-box controller (which I bought specifically for this game) and the story/boss/level aspect is captivating and never bores. If you're a graphics junkie, this isn't the game to get your fix from, but the graphics aren't bad - they're just not state of the art.
The fact that it is hard, without any difficulty settings, makes it only so much more rewarding when you finally are able to beat that boss or that level that you have been struggling on. However, I've never had to try more than about 15 times, whereas a typical boss would take you 5 tries.
The multiplayer aspect is also a lot of fun, plus this version comes with a nice artwork book, a poster and some postcards. An amazing buy for the overall price.
Very happy customer indeed!
